 810 Grant McConachie Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron

810 Grant McConachie Squadron has molded hundreds of youth over the last 48 years into leaders of the future.

Cadets will explore aviation, survival, instruction, leadership, marksmanship and many other skills throughout their time with the cadet program.


COVID-19

In-person squadron activities, along with cadet activities nation-wide, have been suspended for the time being due to COVID-19. There will be no summer training exercises this year.

Parent fundraising will still be important to ensure the 810 can return when it is deemed safe to do so, but Bingo and Casino dates may be impacted. Please ensure you watch your email for details.

Please follow provincial health orders and maintain your social distance. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

About 810 and Air Cadets

Learn more about 810 Air Cadet Squadron and the Royal Canadian Air Cadets, the programs we offer, and how you can get your child involved. 

The three aims of the air cadet program are to:

  • Develop in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership
  • Promote physical fitness
  • Stimulate an interest in the air element of the Canadian Forces

A Note From Supply

Those new cadets who have been measured for their uniforms and are waiting for uniform parts - the uniform parts have been ordered and you will be contacted once they arrive.  It could take several weeks for the uniform order to arrive.

Those new cadets who have not been measured for uniform - you will be measured over the next couple of Wednesday nights then your uniform will be issued and ordered for you.

You do not need to do anything, supply staff will find you when it is time to be measured.
The Cadet Dress Regulations outlines the standards to meet with wearing the uniform. How to lace boots, tie a tie, sew badges, how to wear your hair, etc. See: Cadet Dress Regulations

Uniform Care

Do not cut pant legs, they must be hemmed only.  

Do not glue badges onto the tunics, they must be sewn only.

Washing - your cadet uniform washes very well and looks better the more it is washed.  It is expected that all parts of your uniform are washed regularly and you should be washing your short sleeve shirt every week.        


Attention Parents and Guardians of Cadets:

The key way for the squadron to provide up-to-date information regarding training, events, and other program information is through our email list. If you have an active cadet (or are thinking about enrolling your child), you should be signed up to this list.
